    Windows Calculator: A simple yet powerful calculator that ships with Windows

    Is it? Just opened it on Windows 10 and it opens instantly and uses 23MB of RAM which is rather low for a modern application. Calculator is also fully open source now.

  • OpenPDN

    Discontinued Paint.NET source (v3.36.7; prior to non-MIT license change)

  • aseprite

    Animated sprite editor & pixel art tool (Windows, macOS, Linux)

    One of my favorite "MS Paint" clones is KolourPaint[1]. I've been using it for over a decade (you have to search around to get it on non-linux platforms but I presently have it on MacOS). One of my favorite features is how it handles transparency, where it's just treated like another "color".

    If anyone is heavy into pixel art, you may also be interested in Aseprite[2].
